that paul ryan and mitt romney are stumping there today. >> i'm curious, mike, why the president isn't able to just stay in the white house. is it because the oval office duties beckon too much? or does he go to virginia because he wants to do a campaign stop here and there? >> reporter: i think it's got a lot to do with it. it's a two-fer. there are no public events on the president's schedule in virginia. there were no events in nevada we were told about. but he did go to hoover dam, has photo ops. so it's a side benefit. it's like a camp, a retreat where they can concentrate on what they need to do tuesday night. >> i wonder if he's planning like a five guys outing, you know? >> reporter: could be. he loves his burgers. no questions. >> before i let you go, mike, can i just ask you, the ten or of things going into this debate prep? how stressful do you sense the white house is about this when you combine both the president's performance last week and then joe biden's this? maybe it picked up a little bit they think with joe biden. >> i think there's a sense of relief that biden did what
the romney/ryan campaign raised last night in milwaukee. we look at how the money will get put to work. topping the political headlines, a whole new round of fire on the sunday morning talk shows over -- the debate. tell you how nbc's "meet the press," senior obama campaign adviser robert gibbs conceded the president could have done better and also took aim at governor romney. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but, look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. speaker gingrich was pretty eloquent in running during the primaries in saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> former speaker and republican candidate newt gingrich said this morning that president obama has no excuse. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework and actually prepared and actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? i mean why didn't he take romney head-on? the job of the president is supposed to be competent and be
, comparing with that of romney and ryan. steve. >> so romney and ryan do have somewhat different plans. we talked a lot in the debate last week about taxes. this is the spending side of the equation. to kind of lay out apropos conversations we had earlier in the show about what ryan and romney each believe about spending, let's start with kind of an overview of where the three people would like to bring spending over the next ten years. the 20-year historical average is at about 21%,ed red line that you see across there. obama would like to have spending end up at 23%. romney and ryan both want it down at 20%. so there's a clear difference, and they all agree on where it should go. what gets interesting is as you dig into the detail of what gets cut, and you'll see some very, i think, fascinating differences among these guys. so on social security, as you heard president obama say in the last debate, the three guys are actually in the same place. they want to spend the same amount on social security in the next ten years. when you get to medicare, romney and ryan are in the same place, but
felt when paul ryan was speaking. >> under a romney administration, we will have credibility on this issue. >> vice president biden. >> incredible. >> thank heavens we have these sanctions in place, it is in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> it has been discredited by six other studies. over 100 criminal investigations. >> go ahead. >> reporter: at one point, biden seemed to hold back cursing. >> this is a bunch of stuff. >> what does that mean. >> it is irish. we irish call it malarkey. >> reporter: he pushed back a few times. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost rounds, but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> reporter: biden deployed many attacks that obama didn't. like the 47% remark. >> shouldn't be surprising for a guy that says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> mitt romney is a good man, he cares about 100% of americans in this country. with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes

romney tried to do which is paul ryan, congressman ryan walk away from the positions that he's held during this campaign and try to give a much, much different and softer image for the american people. >> we'll all be watching. robert gibbs, thank you for your time. >> thanks, matt. >> a reminder, can you watch the vice presidential debate. that's tomorrow night, 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific right here on nbc. >>> now 11 after the hours. here's savannah. >>> matt, thank you. the parents of a missing colorado girl are speaking out for the first time since their daughter's miss appearance. nbc's miguel almaguer has the latest on this story. miguel, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. federal, state and local authorities are all working this case as jessica parents speak out for the first time and a community comes together. >> let's have a moment of silence where we just keep our lights to the sky. >> reporter: at a park where she often played, more than 1,000 gathered to pray for jessica ridgeway. the pint-sized 10-year-old seen in this recent home video has been missing si
a nephew who was a marine. he did a tour in iraq and god left him, he thought for our country. and romney in mind, first off, let's get something real clear here once and for all. as far as the sequester cut goes, that is obama's being. it was congressman paul ryan thing because they were too immature to act like grown-ups and make a deal, okay? obama had nothing to do with it. it was paul ryan and the congress. selected that clear once and for all. >> host: castling. >> guest: i think one of diminished on trade issues is the question of leadership and that's we heard a lot from that romney about leadership and what kind of role is obama projecting and by extension, what leadership really seaplane as well as here at home in guiding and shaping how we use our national resources. i do think although the polls may not register that much significance to any foreign policy issue, that when it comes to the broader question of leadership, that is a part of what people are going to be casting those done. i think there's an opportunity as romney clearly identified to criticize obama as a leader. >
